Join Us. Tales From the New Republic. Authors: Peter Schweighofer. In fact, the very first draft I received my first morning in the office was Timothy Zahn’s Jade Solitaire, MoreLess Show More Show Less.

This collection of short stories has been culled from the pages of the "Star Wars Adventure Journal". The centrepiece story is "Sidetrip", a collaboration between Timothy Zahn and Michael Stackpole.

Unlike the short story collections centered around the Mos Eisley Cantina, Episode V's bounty hunters, and Jabba's Palace, Tales from the Empire does not present content written specifically for a book. Rather, these stories are compiled from the Star Wars Adventure Journal, a periodical published in the 1990's by RPG licensee West End Games. For the most part, the authors are not from the usual gang of Bantam Spectra suspects, with the exceptions of Timothy Zahn, Kathy Tyers, and Michael Stackpole. When the Star Wars Adventure Journal began publication, they wanted a New York Times-bestselling author for the launch issue. Zahn had already completed the outstandingly successful Thrawn Trilogy and had no plans to write more in the Expanded Universe. Happily, the magazine's editor persuaded him to offer up some fresh content exclusive to the journal. Conversely, Stackpole's X-wing: Rogue Squadron had yet to be published, so his short story contribution acted as a preview for the novel to come.

Zahn's solo contribution "First Contact" tells us of how the former Emperor's Hand Mara Jade came to be in the service of rogue Talon Karrde. Talon is a well-written character and it's enjoyable to see him on one of his earlier adventures. Mara doesn't come into the story much but as always, Zahn provides an intriguing plotline, even in the brief length of this tale.

Stackpole's tale "Missed Chance" introduces former CorSec officer Corran Horn and his faithful astromech Whistler. Corran is stranded on the planet Garqi and is spearheading a scheme to simultaneously get away and damage the local representatives of the Empire. Tyers continues the saga of her character Tynian, introduced in Tales of the Bounty Hunters, with an origin story detailing the circumstances that led her to her life as a gun-for-hire and rogue.

The final story of the novel is an interesting collaboration between Stackpole and Zahn. Titled "Side Trip," the story is split into four parts (two for each author) and it more of a novella than a short story. Fan favorite Grand Admiral Thrawn is featured, along with Corran Horn once again. The labyrinthine plot has Zahn's stamp all over, and the twists and turns are good fun.

The other authors have a wide range of backgrounds and the quality of the stories is equally varied. Two that stood out are Laurie Burns' "Retreat from Coruscant" and "Do No Harm" by Erin Endom. Burns places her story right before the Empire's re-taking of Coruscant (the starting point of the famous Dark Horse comic saga Dark Empire). It involves two mail couriers swept up in the action as the New Republic attempts to evacuate the planet and move their operations to a new base. This time period would be fertile ground for a future novel. Endom's story is a first-person perspective of a medic sent along on a Rebel strike mission and learning of the horrors of warfare first-hand.

The other tales are largely solid and well-written. One which didn't hold up so well is Patricia Jackson's "The Final Exit," a story of a Dark Jedi's past which suffers from being severely over-written and a bit pretentious. It's OK to use the word "said" once in a while when a character speaks! In this story, everyone whispers, chuckles, grins, replies, demands, spits, blurts - there are so many descriptions it became a distraction to me. Using more neutral language allows the reader to interject some of their own interpretation of mood and tone, which makes for a more compelling reading experience.

Tales from the Empire is a solid if not particularly vital piece of the Expanded Universe; recommended for someone looking for a change of pace from the usual characters or someone wanting to learn more about Zahn and Stackpole's key characters.

What the title and the cover seem to promise is far from the actual content. Sure the stories are set in the Star Wars universe, but unlike the other collections (Tales of the Bounty Hunters, Tales of the Mos Eisely Cantina, Tales from Jabba the Hutt) these stories are very bland, and uninteresting at times.
Sure, some of the stories and characters were noteworthy, but a large disapointment to fans of Boba Fett, Grand Admiral Thrawn, other main characters and the ideology and structure of the Empire itself. Actually, a few stories had nothing to do with the Empire at all it seemed, maybe just a footnote, but nothing that compares to the grandeur of the Empire as depicted in the movies and some of the other recent novels.
I am a huge SW fan, and have read about 80% of 'all' novels set within the universe, and this by far is one I want to forget about.

This collection of stories about the Empire is good. Some were better than others Timothy Zahn seems to be the best at capturing the feel of the Star Wars universe.
Silver Globol
Awesome collection of short stories by some of the premier Star Wars authors

This series of stories are all fantastic.

This book is a collection of short stories about the bad guys in the Star Wars universe. Kind of dark/moody as a result. Good reading, however.

Lots of tie-ins and thick with plot. Great read and I really enjoyed the use of multiple authors to tell a short story.
This anthology of Star Wars short stories is a great diversion from real life. The multi-part mini-novel Side Trip was my favorite!
